The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) has released a draft conservation
strategy related to the Sacramento Valley, San Joaquin Valley and Delta.
The draft report, entitled “Conservation Strategy for Restoration of
the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Ecological Management Zone and the
Sacramento and San Joaquin Valley Regions,” will be available for
public review and comment from July 22 until August 22, 2011.
The document identifies biologically promising ecosystem restoration
opportunities in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Ecological Management
Zone and the Sacramento Valley and San Joaquin Valley regions, and it
provides the rationale for restoration actions specific to each of these
regions. It provides the conceptual framework and process that will
guide the refinement, evaluation, prioritization, implementation,
monitoring and review of Ecosystem Restoration Program (ERP) actions.
